Student exchange agreements have very specific expectations that both partners must commit to, among them an articulation of how an exchange balance shall be maintained and a projection of the number of students expected and the specific programs involved. For questions about exchange guidelines, please contact Rene Sanchez. There are some specifics you should consider:

Is this to be a reciprocal exchange? (e.g. a balance of one-for-one over a three to five year period), or will the majority of students be coming to USF with few outgoing students? In this case financial support becomes a vital issue, so will tuition waivers be involved; assistantships; scholarships; other means of financial aid?

Additionally, faculty must know if student exchange programs currently exist for the country where their potential partner is located and the history of student interest in that location. You can quickly see how an initial meeting with Mr. Sanchez is imperative, and he can expertly advise you accordingly.
